About Mark K. Mellis
I grew up in Glendora, California, and after many moves, now live in Roseville, California.
I served in U.S.S. Sperry AS-12 , U.S.S. Dixon AS-37, U.S.S. O’Callahan FF-1051, U.S.S. Guardfish SSN-612, and U.S.S. Ethan Allen SSN-608* in the U.S. Navy as a Nuclear-trained Machinist Mate and Engineering Laboratory Technician (ELT).
I attended the University of Washington, where I studied Physics.
Drop me a line if you’re so inspired. I love to hear from old classmates, shipmates, former colleagues, and long lost friends.
Yes, the Ethan Allen was an SSN, not an SSBN, when I was a member of her crew.
The banner photograph at the top of the page is the view of Morro Rock from Morro Strand State Beach on the California coast just west of San Louis Obispo, one of my favorite places. It was taken from the door of my family’s motorhome while camping there on my birthday in July 2010.
